Forget about those nightlights that project the universe on your ceiling, or those dumb-ass glow in the dark stars that someone (*cough*stephen*cough*) used to throw up on his ceiling to “make the nights magical,” what will really make your room the best that it can be is a nightlight that looks like the Avengers went for a rumble in your bedroom.

I don’t let my kid run around the store unattended, as there are a bunch of really weird people in the world, and that would simply be bad parenting. BUT if I did, I would hope he and his friends would do something like this – only because it would drive the store manager crazy and ensure I’d never be allowed back. Remember when it used to be “Savings in Every Aisle?”

Image ComicsPress Release

Press Release This July writer Nick Spencer and illustrator Ronald Salas give one man the chance to start life anew after dying in the science fiction romp, EXISTENCE 2.0. “I brought this book to Image, because in all my years of reading comics I’ve never quite seen anything like it,” Image Comics Vice-President Jim Valentino said. “The way Nick and Ron combine the standard tropes of crime and science fiction to create something wholly new blew me away. It’s a comic I had to read and I couldn’t be happier to publish it.” EXISTENCE 2.0 begins moments after self-absorbed physicist

Boom StudiosMark WaidReview

We’ve seen Mark Waid write the hero as bad guy before.  His take on heroes as villains in Kingdom Come shows the hero stepping over the bounds as a revolt against their older counterparts, and trying to figure their place in a changing world.  And while there are others who have written openly violent tales of the good guy doing bad things, no one has ever stopped to ponder the question, “What made this person evil?”   In the case of Irredeemable, Waid dives into the answer and brings readers along for the ride down that dark path.
